New owner Jeff Foster, on the left, looks clean and ready to go in a picture taken today. ‘Old’ owner, Bob Hom (actually, his employer, the DECC, was the ‘old’ owner of the Sundew) put in a lot of work yesterday getting the ship ready to go, literally.

    The Sundew is currently crewed with the assistance of Twin Ports Division of the U.S. Navy Cadets and used as a training ship. Other than that, it’s enjoyed just like any other personal boat. That’s all, nothing crazy…
